Letizia was wonderful today. I love the tiara, it's one of the prettiest in the Spanish royal house. The other jewels are also fantastic.

The loop tiara is not from Cartier, as it turns out, according to this very informative post! https://lilibetshandbag.blog/tiara-tale-la-rusa/

Queen Letizias Jewels during Gala Dinner in Sweden. La Buena, Joyas de pasar earrings, bracelets, and her own Fleur de Lys brooch, Gold Ring.. I know La Buena and the joyas de pasa jewels are the most important jewels in the Spanish vault but i had worn the Italian jewels today... i missed the "wow factor" as i predicted this combination, her Uniform

As discussed in another forum, the Fleur de Lys brooch is actually a detachable element of her Ansorena wedding gift tiara.

It is curious that Letizia is wearing the foremost Bourbon symbol (the Fleur de Lys) whereas Queen Silvia is wearing a tiara that belonged to the wife of Napoleon (the greatest foe both of the French and the Spanish Bourbons ).

I really hoped that some of the Swedes would wear the Connaught tiara, as Letizia has worn Lys tiara, Victoria Eugenia was Margarta's cousin and was her maid of honor at the wedding with the Swedish prince.

Victoria wore the Connaught at the last tiara occasion the Swedes had.

Huge tiaras don't suit queen Letizia, since she has a very petite frame. If she would have a better hairdo, she would look better though.

The floral tiara is the one that suits Letizia best and the fleur de lys brooch is stunning.

It's not really fair to Letizia that she happens to be queen of a place whose most important tiara is both a bit too big for her and also has no adjustable size or setting. If she wore the extensions likely necessary to make a more suitably elaborate hairdo, that would likely make things heavier when the one strength of La Buena is that it is relatively light.

Perhaps in a few years she won't always have to wear it for the ultimate occasions anymore.

If I was Letizia's jeweller, I would advise her to fit the diadem on a 3/4 circlet monture.

Now the diadem is placed on an open setting. A 3/4 circlet makes that the sides of the diadem do not end abruptly but fold nicely back into the hairdo.

Well... the present Prince Napoléon has a Bourbon mother...

Would it not possible to make an flexible frame? This seems the case for the Cameo tiara which was worn yesterdayn in a more open setting by Queen Silvia then it was by CP Victoria at her Wedding Day.

I think most diadems are -within limits- flexible. Queen Silvia indeed has worn the Cameo, the Bragança and the Leuchtenberg in an extremely open setting, but also as a nice closed circlet.


The open structure of the Buena makes me think any professional jeweller can fix it on a 3/4 circlet monture.

At lasrt it was worn by Queen Ena in an almost closed circlet in her younger years. But probably it was changed at some point as in her later years she wore it open like it is now worn.

Another funny twist is that the first Bernadotte queen, Desirée, was the sister-in-law of Joseph Bonaparte who for a few years replaced the Bourbons as King of Spain.

The jewels she wore on on the state visit look impressive enough to common people like me, but I guess some royal watchers are too demanding.
